Sheriff: Aide Who Accused Cuomo Files Criminal Complaint
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The Albany County Sheriff’s office says a woman who accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo of groping her breast at the governor’s state residence has filed a criminal complaint against him.
The complaint was filed Thursday with the sheriff’s office.
It is the first known instance where a woman has made an official report with a law enforcement agency over alleged misconduct by Cuomo.
Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple says it is possible the Democratic governor could be arrested if investigators determine he committed a crime.
Cuomo’s lawyer didn’t immediately respond to request for comment.
He has denied touching anyone inappropriately.
